    LaTeX? Hmm...
    I think while they're at it, they should implement Wolfram Mathematica~

    Having a way to type equations would be really useful.

    please do this. I am a mathematician and would love to be able to talk about math with my mathematician friends.

    I would love this. I needed it now, so I found this post xD

    Could be toggled with a forward-slash command, like `/latex ...`. Seeing as most bots that implement it by rendering the result server-side use node.js, it doesn't seem _too_ difficult to implement in the Discord client.

    This could look like mathim and only include the math part of latex.

    I agree this would really be a plus since I always have to use latex2png ^^.

    i think this would be good if there was an educational edition of discord, then teachers could have servers and kids could help eachother with their homework and ask the teacher questions while they aren't at school. it would also be a good way for a sick kid to get their homework or notes when they're out for the day

    It wouldn't be very hard to add, they just need to include https://katex.org/

    For the formatting, I'd suggest using $ $ for inline and $$ $$ for block comments (like in the Joplin note app). Example:



    Some inline $\vec{v}$ vector.

    Block for big equation:
    $$
    \vec{a} = \vec{b} \times \begin{pmatrix}0 & 1 \\ 2 & 3\end{pmatrix}
    $$

    There is MathBot https://top.gg/bot/mathbot
    I can’t believe this Feature request will happen as it would be effectively deciding to pivot to what is essentially an education focus when games are such a lucrative domain (and they are killing it).

    There's also TeXit https://top.gg/bot/510789298321096704

    It would be nice if this actually happened though. Bot solutions are all well and good, but they aren't as natural as in-text solutions.

    Also, you can only use Bots on servers. Having it in private chat or groups would be awesome too.

    I don't see any problem in implementing this to be honest :/

    If you're happy to use tampermonkey or greasemonkey, you can use the following script to render equations on discord (see below for an example): https://greasyfork.org/en/scripts/396801-mathcord

    "I can’t believe this Feature request will happen as it would be effectively deciding to pivot to what is essentially an education focus when games are such a lucrative domain (and they are killing it)."

    What ? Once it is done it is done, you just need to redirect some commands to a pre-existing small latex equation renderer (It has been proven in this thread that they exist). It will not shift the focus of the program don't be crazy. It just a cool add for people who are gamer and student, teacher, reseacher, whatever .

    Software is never ‘done’ if you want it to keep working. It always requires continual maintenance. That said- I’d be happy to be proven wrong because of all the benefits you mention.

    Well, unless you modify so much the program every update that you break everything each time, once a fonctionality is done you do not have so much to do.

    You could even use mathjax https://www.mathjax.org/ (Discord is web based, am I right ?) and have literally nothing to do.

    I really think mathjax would be welcome, especially with covid-19 and all the virtual classes that are being created. It just takes two line to implement MathJax at least on web/desktop application, isn't ?

    KaTeX would be better than MathJax, given how much less intensive it is; FB Messenger uses KaTeX in their implementation.

    The thing is that MathJax let you modify the renderer and so you can easily display plain source equation which is really more convenient for equation communication and modification.

    I would love to see a LaTeX implementation in Discord. Not just for mathematical symbols but also for greek letters, unit formatting and convenient text formatting.

    It's absurd Discord advertises itself as a place where people talk yet they refuse to add STEM main "talk" language: LaTeX. It's not even complicated, just add in support for KATEX or MathJAX
